Nearly 32 million U.S. kids get meals at school every day- and the meals are based on new nutrition standards from the USDA. Kids attending the schools that participate in the program will have more vegetables and fruits, less fat and salt, and more whole grains. Portion sizes will better meet the needs of growing children. The changes to make for a healthier school day will also provide parents opportunities to help create stronger school wellness policies. If you pack a lunch for your child to take to school, remember to take steps to keep the lunch safe to eat.
